The Balcony Chiang Mai Village
If you’re looking for an authentic, affordable hotel in Chiang Mai with lush gardens, a glimmering pool and attentive staff, you’ll find it here. The Balcony Chiang Mai Village is a charming boutique hotel on the outskirts of town that offers a taste of famous Northern Thai hospitality at very reasonable rates. It comes in classic Lanna style with soaring high ceilings, handsome teakwood furnishings and airy balconies looking over an elegant pool.
If you’re feeling peckish, there’s a small restaurant on site as well as a coffee shop for a daily dose of caffeine prior to a long day of sightseeing. And although the location is a little out of the way, shopaholics will be pleased to know that one of Chiang Mai’s most popular shopping malls is just down the road. Finally, after a long day of shopping or sightseeing, the hotel’s inviting swimming pool is the perfect place to enjoy a sundown cocktail and soothe your tired limbs.

IN YOUR ROOM
Each of The Balcony Chiang Mai Village’s 12 rooms are breezy and comfortable, with airy high ceilings, warm wood accents and colourful stained-glass windows. Solid teak floors and handwoven tribal tapestries add a distinctly Northern Thai touch. The attached bathrooms are tastefully done up with polished concrete countertops and floors, patterned tile and luxurious rain showers.
On the first and second floor, the Deluxe Rooms come with a small patio overlook the swimming pool, while the Deluxe Balcony Rooms feature an airy balcony. For the most privacy, go for the Grand Deluxe Rooms, complete with a separate entrance.
A value-for-money taste of Northern Thai Lanna culture on the outskirts of the city.
Food & Drink
Open from 7am till 10:30pm, the small but cosy Balcony Restaurant is the hotel’s all-day dining spot. Choose from a menu of Northern Thai favourites such as khao soi, or Chiang Mai curry noodles, and stir-fried meats with fragrant herbs over jasmine rice. The setting is relaxed and casual, inside a traditional wooden pavilion that’s open to the cool breeze. A bar offers a small selection of beers, wine and liquor to accompany your meal or enjoy by the poolside.
Downstairs, Fang Coffee is the place to get your daily caffeine fix, or simply cool off from the afternoon heat. Order a thai iced tea or coffee (or one of the many latte variations) and relax amidst the Chesterfield sofas and vintage-inspired furnishings.
Relax with a cold glass of Chang Beer or a cocktail besides the refreshing swimming pool, ringed with traditional paper parasols.
Walk or take a tuk-tuk down to Central Festival Mall (approx. THB 150), one of Chiang Mai’s most popular new shopping centres with enough shops, cinemas and food courts to while away an entire afternoon.

FROM THE AIRPORT
The Balcony Chiang Mai Village is approximately 20 minutes drive from the airport. Taxis are available at the outdoor taxi counter at the very far end of the airport, although the hotel also provides a reasonably-priced airport transfer for THB 300 one-way.
In The Area
The Balcony Chiang Mai Village is located along a busy stretch of road approximately 6km outside the rapidly-expanding city centre. Although there isn’t much of interest nearby, Chiang Mai is a small enough town where most of the attractions are just a short taxi ride away.
The Balcony Chiang Mai Village operates a shuttle service into the Old City - check with the front desk for the day's schedule. Alternatively, call for a tuk-tuk or taxi for a few dollars to take you wherever you need to go, or else hop on a shared minibus, or songtaew. Motorcycles are also available for rent, although we advise this for experienced drivers only.
